Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends
Its greatest expression is as a blended wine with either Shiraz or Merlot, but it also thrives in warm years as a single varietal.
Fine, elegant and potentially long lived wines often fuller flavoured styles with great complexity.
This is the regions finest variety. Fine and lighter bodied in style in the cooler vintages, more robust and fuller bodied in warmer years. These wines are rated among the finest of Australian Pinots.
Produces some of the State’s best of this variety. Fine, intense, lime juice aroma and flavour that ages wonderfully well.
Due to the regions climate, the wines are genuinely cool climate in style. Striking pepper, spice, liquorice and black cherry aromas are hallmarks of the region. This style has helped add a third dimension to Shiraz in Australia.
